    Anybody have the new RS6 alloys on their A3?

    I am thinking about new alloys for summer and these have caught my eye



    Anybody have them on their A3 yet? I seen them in the titanium colour audi do and they look the dogs! For anybody interested the titanium ones can be seen here on youtube (@ 42 secs in):

    I think the genuine ones will be too big and wrong offset, Replicas only for the A3 i reckon however there are 2 types of replicas, some are plain silver, some are a slightly dark high power silver that looks more OEM. be careful out there!

    Aren't they 20"? I like them on the RS6 but they will look ridiculous on an A3. Too big. 19s max!

    I meant the reps.. should have made myself clear.

    Yes like yours Boydie Just a lil out of my price range with the other mods I have planned, but the CH's are high up on my list of favourites.

    Cheers Ash mate, these ones look quite nice



    Although there 18's I'd go for 19's. Thinking of the titanium spraying them titanium colour seen in vid if I wrap the car in white or polished if I wrap it matt black

    Thats alright, contact them see if they do them in 19's? Im on the hunt for 19's now! Just need to pick what alloys and save lol. Like your ideas with the wheels depending on colour wrap you go for. Im looking on getting that wrap around may june time just to stop me from getting bored with my car.

    10blazin, I know what you mean.... it's hard to curb the spending.... I forget we are in a recession every time I think about the changes I'd like to make to my car! The RS4's at wheel base look like they have more concave than the OG Audi A3 version which seems a bit flat in comparison. I was initially planning to get the RS4's myself... but my neighbor has an RS6 the lucky @*** and the wheels look amazing on that car.
    I'm sure a bit of that magic can be transferred when fitted to the A3.

    Cheers john! good to know although as 10blazin points out I was after a 19".
    I hope that the rep's do not lose the concave that the OG's have.

    Brucer, please post some pics up when you get them on mate. I am sure they will look great!

    give it a shot i was thinking them myself for sumut different,,, but the rs4s from wheelbase are lovely for the price top finish thats why i went for them,, but i bet yours will look nice.... once you get your tires you can by a couple of set of reps and swap em over i was thinking cos there only about 350 for a set and with wrapping now available wew hew ....gona be great

    Believe me, if I had the money, then genuine all the way, but reps are affordable so just got to avoid the potholes

    No worries RS, i'm still waiting on confirmation with regards to the date of the car arriving but the salesman was thinking late May or start of June but hopefully i'll see the wheels in the next couple of weeks.

    Cheers

    Glad I could help you out . Are you looking to buy RS6 reps? The car is not mine but a friend's. I'm driving a 2008 S3. I will post some pictures later. It is still virtually stock except for a few minor mods.

    1. Lamin-X tint on headlights and fogs
    2. Re-upholstered my seat with alfa red and black leather (bought it with the leather/ cloth combi)
    3. RS4 start button
    4. LED interior light conversion

    I will have it chipped with APR software next week.

    Alright folks,

    Well to my suprise my new RS6 alloys for my new S3 arrived today at my local Audi garage after just ordering them on Monday & i have to be honest i am not disapointed with them at all. Also to my suprise i got a 10% discount which was ace. Unfortunately i just have to wait for the new car arrive, lol. Here is some pics to give you an idea of them. Now i just need to set up a buyer for the original S3 alloys!!

    Cheers

    Cheers brucer! That's very helpful... seems they haven't done a bad job on the replica's this time round as the reps look mighty like your ones... Obviously the quality is different, but in terms of general appearance and concave, by jove! I think they've got it

    Enjoy em mate... looking forward to seeing them on!

    Oh yeah... they look GREAT! btw
